Default Solexa's Metagenomics Dataset Resource

Dear all,

Is there any repository where we can download
real metagenomic reads from Solexa (i.e. not simulated dataset)?

Typically they are reads from several bacteria
or virus with the quality score in it.

The Illumina is not the platform of choice for metagenomics right now. People prefer the longer contiguous reads of 454. So there may not be much out there.

You might trying browsing to see whats available in the three main short read archives (contain data from 454, solexa, ABI and perhaps even other SR platforms)

I am not for certain but I believe data is shared between them so maybe one is as good as the other.
